I would like to enable editors to define topics or categories for articles (not journal sections), inform readers about theses topics and allow readers to filter out all articles belonging to such a topic. For example editors may define a research topic “Latent Class Analyse” and tag several articles in different journal sections (empirical research articles, review articles, theoretical articles etc.) as belonging to this topic. Readers should be informed, that there is a topic “Latent Calls Analyse” and be able to select all articles belongig to this topic.
Is there a way to do this with current OJS features? Can “Indexed Terms” be used to tag topics and let users filter them out (by following some link - not by searching)?
